Exceeded our high expectations!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Apr 29, 2024
A wonderful experience that exceeded all expectations. The cabin has everything one needs. The surroundings are very beautiful and kangaroos, koalas and the birds come to visit often. Just when we thought it was as good as it can be, we realized there was more! Incredible starry skies and a lot of shooting stars. Wishing we could have stayed for more than 9 days.

    April 2024
    We stayed in the Bayview Guest wing, perfect for the two of us, for our seven night stay. Although it is attached to Amani House, (so it can be hired as part of Amani too), it is very well sound proofed and we chatted to our neighbours at times but felt undisturbed by their presence.
    Fantastic views of the superb Emu Bay, surrounded by wildlife and we were made very welcome by Rene and Johannes. The lovely Rene visited us to make sure we had whatever we needed and she is very knowledgeable about KI and can answer any questions you might have.
    Everything we needed was supplied, including a welcome gift of a bottle of False Cape red wine, local honey and KI oats and the apartment was beautifully clean.
    An easy walk to the beautiful beach, friendly locals and a fifteen minute drive to Kingscote for a meal at the pub, or the local Italian. (Booking is a good idea!)
    Highly recommend Emu Bay Holiday Homes.

    Room tip: Book ahead for meals at the pub and restaurants in Kingscote (15 mins away). Drakes supermarket In Kingscote for some self catering.

    Stayed three nights in Shalom, a well equipped 2 bedroom chalet. Woke up each morning to the sunrise through the front bedroom window. We were lucky enough to have a koala in the tree just outside when we arrived. Two others were in the trees by the entrance. Kangaroos came to visit. Emu beach is a short stroll down the hill, although you can drive and take your vehicle onto the five kilometre beach. Don’t worry it’s hard sand! EBHH is well situated to visit any part of the island and the quiet roads make for easy driving. Flinders Chase at the far western end is just over an hour away.
    Would thoroughly recommend whatever the length of stay.

    Room tip: There is no laundry facility on site, though the owners are planning to add one. The nearest is at Kingscote, a 15 minute drive away.

    A great place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle, really handy they have a 7kW EV charger onsite to recharge at an evening. You can comfortably explore the Island and return to the mainland superchargers with this piece of mind. Natural wildlife all around.

    Room tip: EV chargers on site! Very handy.

    Great house. Lovely holiday and easily visit attractions. The house was as advertised clean and adequately stocked for all our requirements. Beds were comfortable . René promptly replied to our contact. Gardens lovely for walks. Bonus Koalas next to our accommodation and lots of bird life to enjoy.

    Wonderful accommodation which caters to all needs. The view is spectacular with the beach close by. The house is surrounded by a garden that attracts wildlife. The house is well situated and close to many attractions in the island. Family and child friendly. Highly recommended.
